Heartless Bastards

Erika Weenerstrom es la cantante, guitarrista y compositora de Heartless Bastards, trío de Ohio que completan Dave Colvin y Jesse Ebaugh. Una voz realmente espectacular, que dota a sus composiciones de una fuerza y personalidad únicas. Blues y rock añejo, con ciertos guiños a Sonic Youth o a la mismísima PJ Harvey, ya han hecho a esta banda acreedora de excelentes críticas en sus dos primeros trabajos. Estos días se publica, The Mountain el tercero, para el que han contado con la producción de Mike Macarthy ( Spoon, Trail Of Dead) y en el que destaca la canción que le da título, un tema que la revista Rolling Stone ha calcificado como " la mejor canción del mundo
